Northeast Philadelphia Community Meeting
Event Type: Healthy Philadelphia Event
Date: Tue, 03/20/2012 – 6:30pm – 8:30pm
Healthy Philadelphia* has released a report that shows that thousands of people in Northeast Philadelphia are not able to get the health care they need, especially in the areas around zip codes 19124, 19111, and 19120. This shortage of health care resources is a crisis for the people who live here. Come to this community meeting to learn more, share your health care stories and work together to find a solution.
Call to Action: Community Meeting to Discuss Health Care Crisis in Northeast Philadelphia
Tuesday, October 4, 2011 – 5:30pm – 7:30pm
A community meeting on October 4th will address a new report that shows an estimated 18,000 people in Northeast Philadelphia may be going without needed care such as cancer screenings, blood pressure and diabetes medicines, or asthma treatment.
The population of Northeast Philadelphia has changed dramatically in the last 10 years, and the available health care resources just haven’t kept pace with the demand for services. As a result of this increasing need, wait times for new appointments at the City of Philadelphia’s Health Center #10 are as long as six months.
In this meeting, we will discuss the possibility of a new comprehensive primary care safety-net access point should be developed in Northeast Philadelphia, located near the common intersection of zip codes 19111, 19120, and 19124.
